New cannabinoids have become widely popular in the hemp market. One of the most popular, HHC, has also been growing with different products like food-infused items, tinctures, and vaping pens.

Vaping pens are devices that heat up cannabinoid extracts into a vapor that can be inhaled. Legal hemp-derived cannabinoids like HHC, delta 8 THC, and CBD can all be used in HHC vaping devices like pens or cartridges.

Now, HHC, a psychoactive cannabinoid, can also be inhaled through a vape pen. These are known as HHC vapes and can easily be used by newbies and veterans. Down below, you’ll find everything you have to know about HHC and vaping devices, their effects, if they are safe, and which ones we recommend.

What is HHC Vape

Let’s start with HHC. Hexahydrocannabinol, is a semi-synthetic compound that can be found in the hemp plant. It was originally found in the 1940s, and it is responsible for the hydrogenation patent, which today works to transform the oil into margarine.

While found in really small quantities in the plant, HHC is created by the hydrogenation of delta 9 THC. This means adding hydrogen bonds to the D9 THC to turn it into a different, more stable compound.

HHC is psychoactive, which can alter the nervous system and have several effects on our bodies. Some people have said that HHC could help them relax and have other benefits, and they even use it as a potential pain relief thanks to its interaction with our endocannabinoid system.

 

Different Types of HHC Vape 

HHC can be consumed in different ways, like tinctures, cannabinoid-infused food products, and smoking extract with vaping pens. These last ones use HHC distillate that heats up into vapor you can inhale.

This method is similar to smoking but with much lighter vapor. Vapes can also have different extracts, like regular distillate, wax, and even live resin. All of these are heated in a chamber through a battery or internal heating system in a vaping pen device.

There are two main ways of using a vape pen. The first comes in an all-in-one device that only needs recharging, and the second uses reusable recharging. Let’s dive into both of them a little bit further.

Disposable HHC Vape

Disposable vaping pens are a device ready to take some tokes on the go. You won’t have to worry about cleaning or maintenance as they come with the extract chamber and heating element altogether.

The best part of this is that you can take them everywhere, and they are great for newbies and veterans alike. They are easy to use, and most of them even work by just pulling air through the mouthpiece. 

So other than remembering to charge them up every once in a while, you can enjoy HHC extracts discreetly.

HHC Vape Carts 

Hexahydrocannabinol can also be inhaled through a vape cartridge. Unlike disposable pens, these come in a small cart that looks like a glass tube with extract inside. These use an external device that warms up the distillate, which is usually known as a battery.

Vape cartridges or carts use a 510-thread standard to work, require no cleaning whatsoever, and when the distillate is done, you can easily dispose of it.

One of the biggest reasons to choose a cart over a disposable is that if you want to have a unique experience by manipulating heat. Some extract types have different boiling points, meaning that depending on how much heat you apply, you get more flavors or more potency.

Most batteries have different settings, allowing for the HHC cart to heat up at the perfect setting depending if you want potency, flavor, or a little bit of both.

What Are The Effects Of HHC Vape?

Some of the effects consumers report are feeling relaxed, happy, and even relieved. This cannabinoid is also believed to have anxiolytic properties, which could help with some anxiety or stress symptoms.

Besides this, most HHC vapes will make you feel relaxed thanks to how it interacts with our nervous system. By binding to the proteins of our endocannabinoid receptors, this cannabinoid can make you destress and even feel the psychoactive effect of this compound.

And regarding the vape itself, expect to feel the effects anywhere between the 5 through 15 minutes of having a toke. HHC works pretty similarly to other cannabinoids, which usually hit your system directly through the blood vessels in your respiratory system.

 

What is HHC Vape Pen

An HHC vape pen is a device you can use to heat up HHC extract to inhale it and enjoy a few puffs. Unlike smoking, the heating element vaporizes low-boiling point extracts that heat up to a vapor you can inhale.

This method is called vaporizing, and as we mentioned above, it can be done through disposable, all-in-one devices or in two-part cartridges with an external battery. 

The main difference with other pens is that the HHC vape pen uses this cannabinoid extract. Most dispensaries now commonly use distillate, wax, and the top-shelf product live resin. These are potent methods to consume hemp-derived cannabinoids, especially psychoactive ones like delta 8 THC and HHC.

 

Is HHC Vape Safe?

Yes! Just make sure to look for vapes that have high-quality materials. The two main important things are that the chamber uses medical-grade glass to hold the chamber’s extracts.

The second thing to consider is that the vape pen uses stainless steel. This is important because the steel post inside the chamber gets heated, and low-quality metals might erode easily or make the chamber overflow with the distillate or extract.

Using high-quality materials for vape cartridges is important, as you’ll be smoking directly from the device. Having top-shelf medical-grade ingredients makes or breaks the experience of smoking cannabinoid concentrates such as HHC.

 

Is HHC Stronger than Delta 8?

Yes, it is believed that HHC has about 80% of delta 9 THC potency. This would make the newcomer to the cannabinoid family about 20-30% stronger than the hemp-derived D8 THC we all know and love.

That said, some people might feel like HHC is much stronger than D8 on edibles. And this could be related to the bioavailability of this cannabinoid in the body thanks to the hydrogen bonds. This could be related to the hydrogen bonds in this cannabinoid.

Also, as HHC has a more stable shelf life than other cannabinoids, this can keep the potency fresh for longer than regular infused products. That could be linked to the degradation of delta 9 and delta 8 THC to heat and light, which HHC skips entirely.
